As the culminating book in Ken's Civil Society Series, Advocating for Civil Society and Philanthropy builds on his previous five books which have covered stepping up to leadership and fundamental fundraising principles; strategic planning with strong values and energizing culture; 25 proven strategies for fundraising success; top-level ethics and learning to earn the trust of donors; and governance, management and teamwork for effectiveness. This book provide 'how to' guidance' for individuals, groups and associations to create a movement in a chosen problem and lead others to make improvements. It is based on Ken's 55 years of experience and learning from his working with small and large NGOs and with new community organizations. He draws on the views of youth about what needs to be done and how to do it. This is a book for people to use where they live, work, and play - and in their own families - to make a better world.
